I extend my sincerest gratitude to Moorland Federation for their unwavering support, dedication and exceptional resources. Their contributions have played a pivotal role in our school's journey towards excellence and have left an indelible mark on our collective spirit. I am confident that any school fortunate enough to engage with their services will find themselves better equipped, inspired and ready to shine in the SIAMS inspection process.
SIAMS Preparation Support
At the Moorland Federation, we understand the importance of being well-prepared for SIAMS inspections, ensuring that you educators are fully equipped to meet the expectations of inspectors. With our SIAMS Preparation Support we provide comprehensive guidance to help our educators prepare effectively for SIAMS inspections, covering essential documents, understanding their roles, and anticipating potential questions.
Our aim is to support your educators throughout the inspection process, fostering confidence and enabling them to showcase the outstanding work being done within your educational setting.
SIAMS and establishing your Christian Vision
A topic at the heart of our church schools and as a result of our own SIAMs experiences and training, working closely with our Diocesan colleagues (who we adore!) we can offer a bespoke support for you, or you can join us for sessions , such as our development of the spiritualisation aspect of the curriculum.
At the Moorland Federation, we strive to ensure that your educators are well-prepared for SIAMS inspections. As part of our comprehensive support services, we offer a detailed checklist to help you navigate the process with confidence. We can assist in:
- Familiarise Yourself with SIAMS Inspections: Gain a thorough understanding of the inspection process, expectations, and requirements to build a solid foundation for success.
- Evaluate Your School's Provision: Assess key areas such as overall effectiveness, safeguarding, and reading promotion to ensure alignment with SIAMS's criteria for "good" or "outstanding" ratings.
- Prioritise Evidence Over Emotions: Base your evaluations on factual evidence rather than personal feelings. Engage with parents and students to gather insights on their experiences, views, and ideas.
- Acknowledge and Address Weaknesses: Recognise areas that require improvement, and develop proactive plans to address them. Demonstrating awareness and commitment to improvement can positively impact your school's rating.
- Maintain Thorough Record-Keeping: Prepare essential documents for inspectors, including evidence based examples.
- Prepare Your Staff: Ensure your team is well-informed and aligned on key findings and expectations. Collaborate to address potential questions and present a unified front during the inspection.
By following this comprehensive checklist, the Moorland Federation empowers educators to approach SIAMS inspections with confidence and showcase the exceptional work being done in your schools.
The training will include:
- In school checks and virtual support
- The SIAMS process (expectation before, during and after the inspection visit).
- Reviewing your current provision and its effectiveness of supporting your Christian vision
- Enabling pupils and adults to flourish spiritually
- Strategies to support staff through the SIAMS inspection.
